the coil gets warm but not really hot. Everything that I've been able to find about this (which basically amounts to jack@#*&) suggests that this is a grounding issue.
As a result, I ran a 4gauge wire from the battery neg to the front of the boat and used a tester light clamped on a hot post to verify grounds everywhere. Anything that was questionable, i grounded to the 4gauge. Grounding should be good across the board(unless i've missed something).
After all this, still no joy. BEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPP when the key is in the on position.
Boat starts on first turn, runs great, all gauges check out... so i don't know.
I'm pretty much over this thing.
I believe the alarm itself is bad. I would love to find a replacement.. I'm still looking.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If I ever have any movement on this thing, I'll be sure to post my findings.
